8 Preface This booklet is about finance and more precisely about interest rate derivatives. Nevertheless, it contains no models, no numerical methods and nothing new. It contains what everybody is supposed to know when they first start working in the industry: the habits, standards, conventions and all unsaid details regarding those instruments. Everybody is supposed to know about them but, to our knowledge and despair, they are not available in one unique, easily accessible document. In our experience, as Risk Managers, Quantitative Analysts, Back-Office Officers or Traders, we have all one day or another looked for a small detail about a very familiar instrument without finding it. Is Euribor using the end-of-month rule? What is the standard payment frequency for three years AUD swap? What is the last trading date of a mid-curve option on Liffe? Those questions may sound familiar. The only way to find an answer is to ask your colleagues, search on the internet or call a counterpart; at least up to now. The goal of this booklet is to make all those details available in a single document. Nowhere in this document we discuss pricing or valuation mechanisms, even for the simplest instruments. The link to valuation is that any valuation technique for any instrument presented should include all the relevant instrument features. Most of the standard books and articles smooth the roughness of real life. Day count and business day conventions are supposed to appear magically, when they are mentioned at all. We all know that nothing appears magically and that there is no such thing as a free lunch. We do not offer you any of those free lunches, but hopefully we can help you find the salt and pepper for your own lunch. The goal of this document is to present conventions and market standards for the most common financial instruments. Those market standards are relative, and they evolve. We have done our best to collect the information and check it. For the same instrument, two groups of people may have different conventions. This is the case for example with USD swaps: some use an annual money market basis on the fixed leg and others semi-annual bond basis. The conventions evolve; this is the case for example for swaptions for which the standard changed from an up-front premium to a forward premium in September The document is certainly not intended to be read from start to end like fiction. If quantitative finance is compared to a novel, this booklet would be the introduction of the main characters. It is a reference document and we expect the reader to read at most one chapter at a time, and more often one section or even one line. A relatively extensive index has been provided to help you find the right sections. This is also the way it was written, adding lines, currencies, and instruments when they were required in our developments. The document has been divided in three parts. The first one is called References. It describes the financial associations that set most of the standards and the main exchanges for interest rate derivatives. It also contains the definitions of the day count and business day conventions. It finishes with the details on the main overnight and Ibor-like indexes. The second part is called Exchange-traded instruments and describes the instruments listed on exchanges, such as interest rate futures, bond futures and their options. The third and final part is called Over-the-counter instruments and describes the most liquid instruments of the interbank market. In particular it contains different swaps (IRS, OIS, basis swaps, etc.) and different options (swaptions, caps/floors, CMS, etc.). The market being OTC, there is obviously more room for customization in the rules and conventions applied to any particular deal. We have tried to describe the most frequent ones. Obviously this document is not perfect and we plan to add, complement, or correct when necessary. Do not hesitate to suggest corrections and additions. vi

14 CHAPTER 3 Day count conventions 1. 1/1 The day count fraction is always 1. This is definition 4.16(a) in 2006 ISDA Definitions /360 methods The 30/360 methods group a certain number of methods that have in common to compute the accrual factor as 360(Y 2 Y 1 ) + 30(M 2 M 1 ) + (D 2 D 1 ) 360 but differs on how the Y i, M i and D i are computed /360 This is definition 4.16(f) in 2006 ISDA Definitions. The date adjustment rules are the following: If D1 is 31, then change D1 to 30. If D2 is 31 and D1 is 30 or 31, then change D2 to 30. This day count convention is also called 30/360 US, 30U/360, Bond basis, 30/360 or 360/360. The last three terms are the ones used in the 2006 ISDA Definitions. There exists also a version of the day count which depends on an EOM convention. In that case an extra rule is added: If EOM and D1 is last day of February and D2 is last day of February, then change D2 to 30 and D1 to 30. The ISDA definitions do not refer to the EOM convention E/360 This is definition 4.16(g) in 2006 ISDA Definitions. The date adjustment rules are the following: If D1 is 31, then change D1 to 30. If D2 is 31, then change D2 to 30. This day count convention is also called Eurobond basis E/360 (ISDA) This is definition 4.16(h) in 2006 ISDA Definitions. The date adjustment rules are the following: If D1 is the last day of the month, then change D1 to 30. If D2 is the last day of February but not the termination date or D2 is 31, then change D2 to 30. The date adjustment rules are the following: 6. 30E+/360 ISDA If D1 is 31, then change D1 to 30. If D2 is 31, then change D2 to 1 and M2 to M2+1. This convention is also called 30E+/360. 5
15 11. NL/ ACT/360 This is definition 4.16(e) in 2006 ISDA Definitions. The accrual factor is d 2 d where d 2 d 1 is the number of days between the two dates. This is the most used day count convention for money market instruments (maturity below one year). This day count is also called Money Market basis, Actual 360, or French. 8. ACT/365 Fixed This is definition 4.16(d) in 2006 ISDA Definitions. The accrual factor is d 2 d where d 2 d 1 is the number of days between the two dates. The number 365 is used even in a leap year. This convention is also called English Money Market basis. 9. ACT/365 L This convention described in ICMA Rule 251.1(i) is seldom used. It was originally designed for Euro- Sterling floating rate notes. It is used only to compute the accrual factor of a coupon. The computation of the factor requires three dates: the coupon start date (d 1 ), the accrual factor date (d 2 ) and the coupon end date (d 3 ). For semi-annual coupons (the type of coupons for which it was originally designed for), the accrual factor is d 2 d 1 Days in end year where ``Days in end year'' is the number of days in the year in which d 3 is (366 for leap year and 365 otherwise). The convention is extended to annual coupons by d 2 d 1 Denominator where ``Denominator'' is 366 if 29 February is between d 1 (exclusive) to d 3 (inclusive) and 365 otherwise. The convention is also called ACT/365 Leap year 10. ACT/365 A The accrual factor is d 2 d 1 Denominator where ``Denominator'' is 366 if 29 February is between d 1 (exclusive) to d 2 (inclusive) and 365 otherwise. The convention is also called ACT/365 Actual. The accrual factor is 11. NL/365 Numerator 365 where ``Numerator'' is d 2 d 1 1 if 29 February is between d 1 (exclusive) to d 2 (inclusive) and d 2 d 1 otherwise. The convention is also called ACT/365 No leap year.
16 14. BUSINESS/ ACT/ACT ISDA This is definition 4.16(b) in 2006 ISDA Definitions. The accrual factor is Days in a non-leap year Days in a leap year To compute the number of days, the period first day is included and the last day is excluded. Examples: Start date 30-Dec-2010 / End date: 2-Jan-2011: 3/365 = Start date 30-Dec-2011 / End date: 2-Jan-2012: 2/ /366 = Start date 30-Dec-2010 / End date: 2-Jan-2013: 367/ / /365 = 3/ = ACT/ACT ICMA This is definition 4.16(c) in 2006 ISDA Definitions. This convention is defined in Rule 251 of the ICMA Rule Book. The accrual factor is 1 Freq Adjustment where Freq is the number of coupons per year and Adjustment depends of the type of stub period. None: The Adjustment is 1. The second expression reduces to 1 and the coupon is 1/Freq. Short at start: The Adjustment is computed as a ratio. The numerator is the number of days in the period. The denominator is the number of days between the standardised start date, computed as the coupon end date minus the number of month corresponding to the frequency (i.e. 12/Freq), and the end date. Long at start: Two standardised start dates are computed as the coupon end date minus one time and two times the number of month corresponding to the frequency. The numerator is the number of days between the start date and the first standardised start date and the numerator is the number of days between the first and second standardised start date. The Adjustment is the ratio of the numerator by the denominator plus 1. Short at end: The Adjustment is computed as a ratio. The numerator is the number of days in the period. The denominator is the number of days between the start date and the standardised end date, computed as the coupon start date plus the number of month corresponding to the frequency (i.e. 12/Freq). Long at end: Two standardised end dates are computed as the coupon start date plus one time and two times the number of month corresponding to the frequency. The numerator is the number of days between the end date and the first standardised end date and the numerator is the number of days between the second and first standardised end date. The Adjustment is the ratio of the numerator by the denominator plus Business/252 This day count is also called BUS/252. This day count is based on the business, not calendar days. The accrual factor is Business days 252 where the numerator is the number of business days (in a given calendar) from and including the start date up to and excluding the end date. This day count is used in particular in the Brazilian market.
17 CHAPTER 4 Business day conventions A business day convention is a convention for adjustment of dates when a specified date is not a good business day. The adjustment is done with respect to a specific calendar. 1. Following The adjusted date is the following good business day. Examples: Start date 18-Aug-2011, period 1 month: end date: 19-Sep Preceding The adjusted date is the preceding good business day. This convention is often linked to loans and it is a translation of the amount that should be paid on or before a specific date. Examples: Start date 18-Aug-2011, period 1 month: end date: 16-Sep Modified following The adjusted date is the following good business day unless the day is in the next calendar month, in which case the adjusted date is the preceding good business day. This is the most used convention for interest rate derivatives. Examples: Start date 30-Jun-2011, period 1 month: end date: 29-Jul The following rule would lead to 1-Aug which is in the next calendar month with respect to 30-Jul. 4. Modified following bimonthly The adjusted date is the following good business day unless that day crosses the mid-month (15th) or end of a month, in which case the adjusted date is the preceding good business day. Examples: Start date 30-Jun-2011, period 1 month: end date: 29-Jul The following rule would lead to 1-Aug which is in the next calendar month with respect to 30-Jul. Start date 15-Sep-2011, period 1 month: end date: 14-Oct The following rule would lead to 17-Oct which crosses the mid-month. 5. End of month Where the start date of a period is on the final business day of a particular calendar month, the end date is on the final business day of the end month (not necessarily the corresponding date in the end month). Examples: Start date 28-Feb-2011, period 1 month: end date: 31-Mar Start date 29-Apr-2011, period 1 month: end date: 31-May Apr-2011 is a Saturday, so 29-Apr is the last business day of the month. Start date 28-Feb-2012, period 1 month: end date: 28-Mar is a leap year and the 28th is not the last business day of the month! 8
18 CHAPTER 5 Overnight indexes Overnight indexes are indexes related to interbank lending on a one day horizon. Most indexes are for overnight loans and some for tomorrow/next loans. The rates are computed as a weighted average of actual transactions. The most common usage of those indexes in interest rate derivatives is in overnight indexed swaps (see Chapter 22). Some overnight indexes and their main characteristics are summarised in Table 5.1 and Table 5.2.
